Fortress Marin; An Aesthetic And Historical Description of The Coastal Fortifications of Southern Marin County.
Santa Cruz: Quail Press, 1977. Royal 8vo, (52) pp., with map tipped-in at rear, illustrated with 18 woodcuts in blue and black (mostly full page), colophon. Quarter brown buckram over red boards, paper label on front cover. Fine. Limited to 240 copies printed from the original lino-cut blocks by the artist on Japanese hosho paper; book designed by Richard Bigus; signed by Killion at the colophon. One of a series of woodcut books which show Killions affinity with Japanese woodblock prints. The lovely cuts illustrate what is equal parts a poetic evocation of landscape and a history of the military fortifications.
